- Having data backup
- Adequate power backup
- Creation of recovery disk
Having data backup
When uninstalling OS from your system, you must always ensure whether you have backup of all important data. Even when such uninstallation is done only for the live partition, there are some chances of some kind of error taking place, which could corrupt the OS leaving data on the other partition that becomes inaccessible. Hence, it is good to have a backup of all data, so that data could be recovered immediately and could also be used with another system, when required.
Adequate power backup
Uninstallation or removal process of the operating system in your PC should not be disturbed at any cost until it is completed. This is because; such disturbances of the uninstallation process could result in errors and would also leave your system inoperable. Hence, it is necessary for you to ensure whether there is sufficient amount of power backup available, so that the uninstallation process can be completed without any errors.
Before you could start the process of removal or uninstallation of OS from your system, you are recommended to create a recovery disk of your currently installed and working OS. This need to be done as a precautionary measure because, even if some issue arises with reinstallation process of a different operating system or with uninstallation process, your system could be readily rolled back to its previous state of function, easily. Also ensure whether such recovery disk contains, all driver related information too.
